The Antagonist Art Movement: Doll

I am very honored and fortunate to have had the chance to participate with the Antagonist Art movement in the past couple of years. This time around, Their movement had a few hand made dolls that were created by one founder of the movement by the name of Ethan Minsker. This dude is way cool, and is well rounded and know way too much about the art movement in New York City. He even offers the chance for other artist to show and present their art work in Lower Manhattan at a place called Niagara Bar and Lounge, located at: 112 Avenue A [at 7th Street] New York City. number: 212-420-9517

The following information is from The Antagonist Art Movement BLOG post:
What are the Dolls Of Lisbon?

It’s the next overseas art show in Portugal.

The plan: 10 to 20 artists, musicians, and filmmakers travel to Lisbon

for 10 days of creative events. Ted can give you more on the artist’s

statement. For my part I’m working on the film that documents the

event. I’ve already been shooting for 8 months.

The Dolls

I’m making 100 dolls for artists to paint change and make their own.

We will then show them in Lisbon. It takes me about 9 hours to do one.

I start with a wire frame then take strips of cut up t-shirts and

build up the body, and then I cover it tightly with canvas. It’s hard

so the artists can paint it. I’ve made 64 dolls. 16 went to Lisbon, 6

Berlin, 2 Baltimore, 1 Roma, and the rest in and around NYC.
How do you get to work on a doll?
You have to show with us on a Thursday art show. If we like your work we will ask you to do a doll.

We were hoping to go in October or November of '09 but it looks more

like May of 2010.

What is the hold up?

We are waiting for written conformation from the gallery and city.

Bring on the bitching. Artists and other Antagonist keep harassing me about the date. I get it, you want to know so you can take off time from work and get a deal on a ticket. Well I could make up a date, but that won’t help you. When I know the dates you will know the dates.

Stop asking me.

You can see a selection of dolls at the Antagonist show on October 17th to November 12th at the Mindy Wyatt Gallery, 814 Broadway, 2nd floor, NYC.
If you are one of our artists who is working on a doll post a photo here.
